Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

I have a 2005 Ford Focus station wagon (or 5 door or whatever they call it now). My husband's is a 2011 Subaru Legacy.

I'm definitely a Ford fan - have had two Fords (the other a 1980-something Taurus), a VW (1969 Beetle) and a Pontiac Sunfire, and the Fords just seem to fit me best.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

I have 2 Fords - 2012 Ford Focus. I got it standard shift. It's a dark metallic gray. It's a lot of fun to drive and gets great gas milage (36-38 mpg)

I also recently bought a 2013 Ford Escape. Nice ride. Very comfortable and quiet. Doesn't have much guts off the line, but it climbs really nice at higher speeds. And it doesn't do bad on gas either (30 - 33 mpg). I got this one used (an early lease return with 15,000 miles on it) for about $11,000 of new sticker price. It was a great deal.

Ford's making a nice car these days, especially for the price.

I don't, on the odd occasion I need a car, I tend to rent a Vauxhall Insignia or similar - large but cheap.

I rented a Ford Focus for a month and loved it. What a great little car! This is my funny looking car that I love (Nissan Juke like I posted earlier).

Never bothered to learn to drive and at 50 I'm unlikely to.

No car...

Currently though I have VW Golf MkIV TDI. If/When I change, I'll probably end up staying with the same group.

I have a 99 Toyota Camry and my wife have an 02 Toyota Sienna. The Camry has 190,000 miles on it, so I'm thinking I have a new car in my near future.
My Saturn has 140,000 miles on it, and I'm hoping to get about 100,000 more out of it.

I probably should just Google this, but are those suicide doors in back? (That's probably not what they're actually called either...)

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

The 2001 Accord Sedan is in the driveway still, but about to be donated.

Still have a 2002 Toyota Sequoia, which is the perfect school bus, ski mobile.

Just bought a 2013 Hyundai Veloster, having much fun with it...

I googled the term and it looks like you're referring to doors that hinge at the rear? They're not, if that's what you're asking. They open like normal doors, just with the handle near the top. Actually a lot of people assume it's a two-door because they don't realize those are doors at the back immediately.

Nissan has had those window handles for a while.

My old Pathfinder had them.
